Volunteer Information

Sign-up Form
Believe it or not, there is work to do all year round! Hub volunteers are needed for fund-raising, working on kit materials, contacting schools, recruiting mentors, organizing the various events surrounding the competition and a (long) list of other activities. If you are interested in surrendering some of your time in exchange for absolutely no money, please take a moment and fill out the online sign-up form.

What do volunteers do? Among the many activities, some volunteers  risk life and limb (while donning zebra stripes) to supervise the games and keep things under control.  Volunteers put the field together,  arranged for the use of the gymnasium, took care of the nice trophies awarded to the teams, and a long list of other activities needed to make BEST happen.  If you'd like to be part of the team,  why don't you go ahead and sign up?

If you're not quite ready and would like some additional information on volunteer activities, please contact us (no high pressure sales, we promise).
